Prunus avium 'Hudson'
Hudson finishes up the season with a bang! This very firm, sweet, dark red, crack and rot resistant cherry extends the cherry harvest for two weeks or more. Introduced in 1935 by the NY Experiment Station, we have reintroduced it for its outstanding flavor, productivity and late season. On Gisela 5 rootstock.
Gisela 5 is a dwarfing rootstock, 50% of standard size, that induces heavy early fruit production. Trees can be maintained at 10 to 12 feet tall. Gisela 5 is more forgiving of shallow soils and a better choice than the even more dwarfing Gisela 3 for people with enough room for this somewhat larger tree.
